Are you ready for the Packers-Bears game on Sunday Night?
Well we the fans certainly are, but if it takes Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang another couple days to get ready, then by all means we'll be happy to give it to them. Hopefully the two guards will be able to move forward in their rehab today and can practice over the weekend in time to play Sunday Night.
Meanwhile, the Saints gave the rest of the league a blueprint on how to take Jordy Nelson out of the game two weeks ago. Granted, they gave up big days and big plays to the Packers' other receivers, so if they can keep up that level of production the Packers should still have plenty of success moving the football. Still, we'll be paying close attention this week to see how the Bears decide to defend the Packers' various talented wideouts.
